    Was there any point whatsoever in me siging up for a 3rd party IMAP mail service?

    The IMAP service's attitude to Blackberry BIS was 'lots of luck! We cant help you there..!"

    I omitted to do the research here (totally my bad)

    Think I need to really know is.

    Is there any benefit whatsoever to me (a Mac user) keeping this IMAP service?

    It wasn't a huge amount of money just one months subscription and a few dollars for set up. I can cancel it no problems..

    Is there any point in me keeping it?

    Can I make use of it for Google IMAP sync?

    Or shall I just dump it and start over..?

    What shall I do?

    REALLY appreciate the help!

    Might be being a little too negative about it.

    I think it may be working to mark the emails I have read on my BB.

    Any tips for settings / config for 'sent' emails?

    (I think its the sent stuff that doesnt fully work..??)

    Reading a mail on my Mac doesn't seem to cause it to look 'read' on my BB.

    OK my sent mail from the BB DOES appear in the IMAP sent email folder on my mac.

    So some sort of progress..

    hit a brick wall.

    Check this out..

    You know the cool ToDo's you can make in Leopard Mail and iCal?

    The ones that PocketMac and MissingSync can sync to your BB?

    ToDo's made in IMAP Mac Mail & Mac iCal - WONT PLAY BALL AT ALL

    IMAP = total disaster for me

    Back to POP I go!

    Totally pizzed off..

    OK I have to move IMAP mail ToDos over manually to the On My Mac ToDo area THEN they WILL sync to BB and will still retain links to mail etc..(On the Mac)

    Marking an email read on my BB marks read on my Mac but not the other way round.

    Progress but the whole journey has tired me out. If that new Palm Pre phone and its WebOS plays ball very well with Mac I may have to bail on BB. I am worn out with this sh!t now...
    If that comes out with a Mac friendly interface and RIM still haven't released their Mac desktop.. That would be totally shameful... IMHO.
    The bb browser is ballz too.

    Casper or anyone- I have IMAP on my Mac for my gmail account. If i put my gmail account on my Storm what happens if the Storm's is a POP account? Are there any potential problems?

    I think the thing to do is to delete the pop account on the Storm and set up an IMAP one. But do some searching around and don't take my word for it. I am wandering around in the dark with all this at the moment..
